Three suspects entered a man’s car and robbed him at knifepoint earlier this week, according to the NYPD.
The three suspects entered the 22-year-old victim’s vehicle on Wednesday at approximately 4:30 a.m. The first suspect entered through the passenger door and put a knife to the victim’s abdomen, while the second suspect sat behind the victim and restrained him by holding his neck, according to police.
The first suspect then removed $350 in cash from the center console as well as the victim’s iPhone, the NYPD said.
The victim was parked in front of 32-02 36th Ave., near the intersection of 36th Avenue and 32nd Street.
The first suspect is described as a black male last seen wearing a red hat and black hoodie. Police released a photo of this suspect.
The second and third suspects are only described as male and female, respectively.
Police are asking anyone with any information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
I just go into the bathroom stall to buy my drugs, I don’t let all three dealers into my car. WTF
Sounds scary! Look behind you and lock your car doors immediately after entering your vehicle especially at 4:30 in the morning. I am sure they must of followed this guy to his car. With so many places staying open so late in Astoria and visitors, you can not be suspicious of everyone but at least you are aware of your surroundings. The victim also had $350 dollars in his car..I wonder where he was going or coming from.
Probably need to check out the videos from Melrose Ballroom on 33 St off 36 Ave and the hip hop club on 34 St and 36 Ave.
These places need to lose their liquor licenses.
I wonder if the victim was from the neighborhood or just visiting?
pray they get them
